Directory Monitor (or Maildir Notifier)

Screenshot

Directory Monitor is a Plasmoid that counts the number of files in the specified directories and displays a notification anytime the number increases.

I made it to count the number of new messages in my maildirs (hence the alternative title :) but it is pretty generic could be used for other purposes.

The plasmoid uses Qt's inotify capabilities, so the changes are instant.

Window Controls is a Plasmoid with which the window controls can be put on the panel, conveniently placing the close button in the top-right corner.

It is largely based on the Current Application Control plasmoid.

Network Information

NetInfo is an Plasma applet/data engine combination that I wrote some time ago to display various wired and wireless network information on Linux. Since you probably don't need to see all the data that you can see on the screenshot to the right, it is fully configurable allows you to exclude and rearrange the data-points as you see fit.
